This blog is about haiku. A classical haiku counts 5-7-5 syllables. Chèvrefeuille (the pseudonym of Kristjaan Panneman, a Dutch haiku poet) however writes his haiku in the Kanshicho-style. In the Kanshicho-style the classical syllable count isn't used. Matsuo Basho (1644-1694), a haiku poet, wrote his haiku in Kanshicho-style for several years, but he returned to the classical way of haiku writing. !!! Anonymous comments will be seen as SPAM !!!.

Artificial flower, an impromptu haiku
A few days ago I shot this photo and it inspired me to write the following haiku, just an impromptu verse.
an artificial flower
on search of honey
It was really a joy to watch this bumblebee it stayed on this artificial flower for a long time. I had a few more photo's of it, but they weren't good enough to use.
Well ... see you next time, with another nice haiku I hope.

I love this.
Years ago, an elderly lady,
age 100- ish, was watering an artificial plant at the health care center I was working and said to the house keeper, "I think it is starting to grow". Hope eternal for bees and people.
Great moment to capture.
Love Siggi's comment.
Hope does indeed spring eternal, even in search of honey.
